Hello and welcome.
If you’re feeling anxious, depressed or stressed and that life is miserable and lacking joy and that there is nothing to look forward to, life can feel particularly tiring. Additionally, you may not understand why you’ve been feeling this way and feel powerless to change things or hopeless about things getting better. You might want to talk to someone about how you’re feeling but don’t want to burden friends or family, and may feel nervous or apprehensive, or embarrassed about seeking help from a counsellor or therapist.
I provide confidential, non-judgmental counselling and psychotherapy in a safe and supportive environment for individuals and couples in London (Brixton, Clapham, Streatham, and elsewhere in South West London) and also currently online.
Why Counselling or Therapy?
We all experience difficulties in our lives, but these are often made worse by the ideas, assumptions and beliefs we hold about ourselves, other people, relationships, and life in general, which inform how we think, feel and behave. Most often we are unaware of these ideas, and so they go unchallenged, meaning that if they are unhelpful, we can find ourselves living in a way which causes pain and suffering.
Counselling and therapy will help you explore these assumptions and beliefs, as well as their origins, so that you can find healthier and more positive alternatives, leading to greater relationships, wellbeing and enjoyment of life.
I’m a counsellor and therapist who works with people to lift the lid on these assumptions to examine their accuracy and usefulness, and in order to explore healthier and more realistic ways of viewing ourselves and the world, which can help us to lead happier and more fulfilling and satisfying lives.
I’m a counsellor and therapist who also believes that it is through having compassion for ourselves in the difficulties we experience that we are able to work through and gain freedom from them.
Choosing the right therapist or counsellor for you can be a confusing, daunting and overwhelming experience, and it can be hard to know if you will feel safe and comfortable enough with someone to share with them painful and difficult thoughts, feelings and experiences. That’s why I offer a free initial telephone consultation for up to 15 minutes so that you can see whether I might be the right kind of therapist for you.
Please contact me via text, telephone or email if you would like to arrange a call with me. I look forward to hearing from you.
